This month we are diving into Eucalyptus! Native to Australia where there are over 700 species(!), this genus of trees provides us with valuable medicine.
Most people relate Eucalyptus to cough drops with good reason. Eucalyptus is great for all things pulmonary, whether it is inflammation, infection, congestion or constriction. We’ll go over all these aspects and also learn how Eucalyptus is great for treating arthritis, fungus, wounds, infections, sore throats, stimulates circulation, respiration and immunity in our bodies. A great herb to have on hand, you’ll learn how to use this herb in ways you’ve never thought of using him!
Pets can benefit from Eucalyptus too. Our craft section has a handy way to help your dog or cat repel fleas. It’s all in the February issue of Herbal Roots zine!
